Great work with synths and warm sounds. Really love the collective entirety of the track’s sound. Hard to believe it’s a collaboration.
Tall Black Guy – The Motor Is Running
Super creative drums. Love how he uses vocals (beatbox) all the way through this track. Tall Black Guy has been an influence on me since I first heard “Time”. This song here also inspires me to understand song progression a bit deeper.
Kiefer – U R What U Repeatedly Do
My morning mantra is Kiefer. Jazz beats with a touch of lo-fi. It’s so fresh to hear an instrumental beat with an amazingly played real piano rather than a sample. Still love good chop sample on the drums beat.
Slakah The Beatchild – Byram’s Groove (Cut a Rug)
This is the producer I’ve been listening to for over the last month now. This is the first track I found on Spotify and I love how all the elements on this track are organic. There’s a nostalgic feeling to this particular song but it still holds the hip-hop vibe.
Azymuth – Un Amigo – A Friend
Forever my heroes. My favourite song from Azymuth that’s taken from my favourite album, Outubro. The whole song is amazing. Brazilian rhythms fused with jazz. This group is a timeless inspiration.
